Did you know that a fjällraven is a fox? An arctic fox. It’s on the logo of Fjällraven, and this is why…
It is 1978. In that year Åke Nordin creates a backpack that will go international: the Fjallraven Kanken.
A couple of years before he already started with creating his own tent, outdoor clothes and backpack because he couldn’t find the right one for his walks in the Swedish forests. So he made them himself.
The Fjällraven Kånken became a hit
At the time he created the Kånken, it became a hit, especially among students. Fjallraven was already famous among outdoor lovers, now the brand became a worldwide hit. The Kånken was designed in many colours and everybody wanted one. Easy to carry, not too big and really strond and waterresistant.
